Major Funk

We’re excited to reveal that Whitehorse’s own, Major Funk, is coming to Midsummer Festival this July. Locals may recognize Toby Moisey, a renowned flutist from Smithers who has appeared in many bands of wide ranging musical styles over the last 20 years. He returns to the valley with this dance powerhouse of a band, Major Funk is sure to make you move.

High energy bass-led grooves, soaring vocals, and a tight horn section; this isn’t what you’d expect from a band coming from the Yukon in Canada’s North, but it’s exactly what you get with Whitehorse’s Major Funk. It’s also a great formula to get a crowd moving, and they’ve got this down to a science. Several years of research and development in the studio and on the road has refined the band’s sound into something familiar but fresh, epic but accessible, and dangerously infectious. Most importantly, however, it’s a ton of fun, and it makes you want to dance. It’s all on display in their growing discography of top notch funk-pop music and their unforgettable live shows: a groove-heavy genuinely good time that will stay with you long after the last note.
